Haldane dropped after admin error

Haldane had been named in the England C squad for the first time

Oxford United winger Lewis Haldane has been withdrawn from the England C squad after it was discovered he has already played for Wales Under-21s.

The 23-year-old, on a season-long loan at the U's from Bristol Rovers, was in the squad to face Malta Under-21s.

A Football Association spokesman said: "Haldane's inclusion in the England C squad for the Malta was as a result of an administrative error."

Fellow U's winger Craig Nelthorpe is on standby for next Tuesday's game.

Oxford United chairman Kelvin Thomas and manager Chris Wilder will appear on BBC Oxford's drivetime phone-in from 1830 GMT on Thursday, on 95.2FM and online at
